Peas and Mint Soup

It is raining soups... these days at home. One of the reason to have soups on menu is to reduce the amount of rice that we eat at night and ......the idea is working!!! with some extra work. As long as it is healthy and helps to shed some weight that extra work is joyful for me.

The taste of Peas and Mint Soup is very different from the soups that I have had till date. The subtle aroma of fennel seeds gave us a nice feeling when we had it on our dining table. Fennel's carminative properties helps to relieve flatulence (because.... of eating?/drinking peas in large quantity).
